The renowned Slovene health spa - the Olimia Thermal Spa lies in the upper Sotla River valley, among hills full of vineyards, close to the Community of Podčetrtek.

The natural warm springs were undoubtedly known to the Celts and Romans, given the numerous archaeological finds from those periods in the surrounding area and the immediate vicinity of the spa. Since then people—mainly the local population at first—have enjoyed the pleasantly warm water, probably unaware of its chemical composition. It was enough to know that it banished fatigue, eased pain, and healed wounds. The Olimia Thermal Spa developed as a source of health in the middle of this naturally beautiful and interesting landscape.

Discover joy and well-being at the Olimia Thermal Spa at the prestigious Wellness Hotel Sotelia with modern congress centre, Hotel Breza, Aparthotel Rosa, Lipa Village, the Health and Beauty Centre, the Termalija swimming pools, and the Aqualuna Thermal Park.
The wide variety of fun also includes tennis, golf, bicycling, hiking, volleyball, basketball, badminton, kayaking and canoeing.
